generally - is a lower mileage older model or a newer model with higher mileage a better buy?

Asked by Feb 13, 2014 at 02:52 PM about the Honda Odyssey

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I am looking to buy a used Honda Odessey EX or EX-L.

I am finding 2000-2004 models with around 100,000 - 120,000miles and then some more recent models (2006-2008) with 130,000-180,000 for around the same cost.

My use will be some local but more long distance.  I am not versed in repairs/maintenance - but I do take my vehicles for service regularly.

This is a tough one. If your goal is long distance, I don't think either is an option. Why waste your time with a 100k 2000 Odyssey? And a newer 2006-2008 has done most of it's leg work already. I mean unless your budget is like 4k, I think the better buy is a combination of lower miles and newer model car. I never buy new cars simply b/c the value of the car diminishes significantly after you drive it off the lot, but I also don't buy used cars on their last legs. I think both of these options are just that.
